Hundreds gather around Haley Heritage Square at Morningside Park in Knoxville, Tenn., for the dedication of a 13-foot bronze statue of "Roots" author Alex Haley. In attendance was Haley's daughter, Lydia Anne Haley, 55, of Beaufort, N.C. Haley spent his last years in the Knoxville area before his death in 1992. His search for African ancestry led to "Roots," published in 1976, which won the Pulitzer Prize, sold millions of copies, was printed in 37 languages and was made into a 12-hour TV miniseries. Among the crowd gathered was Louis Gossett Jr., who won an Emmy for his role.
